On draft. Pours deep hazy orange, creamy off white head. Smells of floral hops. Very drinkable and taste of floral hops with a nice dry finish. Very drinkable and very good pale ale!

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is hop driven. The taste is bitter hops. A solid beer.

A great beer with a light hop finish. The only ’average’ thing about this beer is its orange-y appearance.

Sweet flavors balance the hops nicely. Does not have the typical overwhelming hoppiness of an APA. Great looking and great tasting.

Nice local brew. I like the aromatic hoppy flavor and find it quite refreshing. Too bad it occasionally gives me a headache... maybe they are brewing this with Atlanta’s god awful municipal water?

First off, what ever roder60 is drinking it aint the right beer ( danm the steelers too). This beer is great, drinkable, flavorful, complex, callled 420. If you don’t like this beer, you are not a good beer drinker. And it’s not just the sotherner in me, this brew has everything in balance, such is the subtle art of the Sweetwater brewers. Yall just try it!
